We’re delighted to announce our latest endeavour: LUX Scotland at Glasgow School of Art Library, a dedicated artists’ moving image library. We have been working together, drawing from LUX and LUX Scotland’s expansive relationship with artists’ moving image, and the GSA Library’s facilities to bring you Scotland’s first dedicated library for artists moving image. This resource will enable GSA students and library members to gain access to a world of moving image artworks; from early work emerging from the London film cooperatives that gave birth to LUX, through to contemporary practice in Scotland and beyond. We invite you to explore the relationship between books and moving image, and the rich history of moving image within art.
As well as being open to existing library members, we are pleased to offer a reduced membership fee to all SUPERLUX members at £25 a year (discounted from £40). To become a member, visit the GSA Library with your SUPERLUX membership number. Fill out an External Borrower Membership form and your card will be posted to your home address within 7-10 days.
The LUX Scotland resource is accessed within the GSA Library. Library staff will buzz visitors through the turnstiles or gate at the Library entrance on the corner of Renfrew Street and Scott Street. The resource is on display in the second floor space by the DVD collection, next to a television where you can watch titles. During term-time, GSA Library is open 7 days a week, 8am-10pm Mon-Fri and 8am-6pm Sat-Sun. You can find out more here.

This generative tour explores artists’ moving image in Scotland over the past 100 years, and is travelling across six national host venues. The project showcases the rich tradition of artists’ filmmaking in Scotland, and begins a conversation with audiences, venues and artists about what might constitute a distinctly Scottish tradition in both a national and international context.
Each of our six host venues will adapt the programme in response to their own context, by adding a work that they commissioned or is particularly resonant to their area; organising a live event that roots the discussion in their region; or developing a series of talks and readings with their local audiences. As the project progresses, the tour will change and expand beyond the original programme.
Details of the following projects can be found on the dedicated #whereiam2015 platform.

Our regular One-on-One advice sessions will be hosted at DCA and led by artist Sarah Tripp, assisted by Luke Collins (LUX Scotland Project Manager).

She co-produces an artist-led journal of art writing called Gnommero, and she recently published You are of vital importance (Book Works, 2014), a collection of short stories and vignettes.

LUX Scotland is offering a number of free artists’ advice sessions with LUX Director, Benjamin Cook. Sessions are for Scottish and Scotland-based artists working with the moving image who are no longer in full-time education.
These are informal sessions with LUX staff aimed at developing a wide-ranging dialogue around your practice and can involve any or all of the following areas:
Sessions usually last for one hour, you are welcomed to bring work to look at on a USB (although we would advise to not bring too much) plus written material such as practice descriptions. At the end of the session we’ll ask you to fill in a short evaluation form so we can monitor how useful the sessions are.
